moosebutter seeks bass for full-time position beginning June 2006
maybe a different voice part 'cuz one of us can sing bass, too, but he
doesn't really want to. So I guess you can inquire if you are not of
the bass persuasion. Or if you're a bass in The Persuasions.
You: Bass singer, a cappella experience, preferably able to percuss
(limited) at the same time, and of course you are an acutely
intelligent person who will look smashing in a red jumpsuit and
headband. Formal vocal training good, real-world performing experience
nice, cooking skills a definite plus, comedy experience might be cool
but it was probably just you doing an old Bill Cosby routine at your
school talent show so that doesn't count, comedy and music
improvisation skill also kosher, writing and arranging abilities blah
blah brilliant sight-reader yada yada perfect pitch sumthin mumble
michael bolton. If you are deft at live-animal eating or
double-jointed-ness please keep it to yourself.
Submit resume and audio samples by May 15, sooner if possible
Please include a detailed list of experience and skills - list any all
things you can bring to the group, including business areas.
Instruments played, etc. Also, personal experience and favorite
musical topics you would most like to present in context of an
educational program, and how you would present them (musical examples
singable by 3-4 dudes would be good here).
Oooo! Oooo! Ooo! Also, yeah, if you are proficient at setting
up/working sound equipment and/or recording and editing recordings,
then we shall hug you tenderly, brush you with olive oil, and staple
you to the wall so all generations can adore your skills.
If we schedule an audition we'll expect you to learn a bunch of songs
and come sing with us to see if we like you.
More: We are clean-living (no drinking, no smoking, no drugs, no loose
women, no kung-fu movies unless from the 70's) and expect our show and
our business lives to reflect this. Foul humor, unethical behavior,
poor role-modeling for kids will not be tolerated. There will be small
kids on the road with us, and we'll be performing for lots of kids as
well as families in addition to our sold-out arena shows with our
opening band IRON MAIDEN. We don't even swear, so don't apply if
that's too weird for you.
You'll be expected to learn a lot of music and do a lot of shows
quickly, jive with the chemistry and direction of the group, and
occasionally prance like a noble antelope if that's what the paying
public wants to see. Health and personal commitments should allow for
rigorous touring regime.
If hired, you will be asked to relocate to the Boulder, Colorado area,
learn a ton of music on your own, take part in continuing voice lessons
and musical study, and maintain your own happy life when not on the
road or performing.
Further details can certainly be discussed.
